Zinc Oxide Based Nano Materials and Devices

Edited by Ahmed Nahhas

Umm Al Qura University

This book presents a review of recent advances in ZnO-based nanomaterials and devices. ZnO as a nanomaterial has gained substantial interest in the research area of wide bandgap semiconductors and is considered to be one of the major candidates for electronic and photonic applications. ZnO has distinguished and interesting electrical and optical properties and is considered to be a potential material in optoelectronic applications such as solar cells, surface acoustic wave devices, and UV emitters. ZnO's unique properties have attracted several researchers to study its electrical and optical properties. As a nanostructured material, ZnO exhibits many advantages for nanodevices. Moreover, it has the ability to absorb the UV radiation.
